Teresa Giudice Tweets ‘Miss You Too!’ to Cat Rodriguez, Former RHONJ Executive Producer Allegedly Fired for Conflict of Interest

September 22, 2012

Regarding former executive producer Cat Rodriguez sending a tweet to Teresa: “She would of been asked to make it public by the producers. They are aware of the what is being said on Twitter and blogs. Cat hates Teresa and Teresa knows it. I don’t know for a fact, but I can bet Cat was told to appear mutual to squash the rumors and Teresa would of had to go along with it.” – Former RHONJ Post Production Supervisor, September 23, 2012

On September 21, 2012, Teresa Giudice tweeted a response to Cat Rodriguez, the former RHONJ executive producer who allegedly was fired for conflict of interest:

Teresa Giudice Teresa GiudiceVerified ‏@Teresa_Giudice
@yourfriendkitty Miss you too!
9:54 PM – 21 Sep 12

Are they trying to send a message with the recently changed photo for Cat’s Twitter account (one with a Fabellini backdrop) and the tweet?

Here is Cat’s new Twitter photo (her account is protected) from a screenshot on September 21, 2012 versus her old photo from a screenshot on August 2, 2012:

It makes you wonder if all the cast members are part of the staged drama, if any of the fighting is real, and if they are playing the viewers to drive up ratings and to sell their products.

Why are Cat and Teresa tweeting each other? Did Teresa make her reply public by accident?

Cat also tweeted Teresa in March and May of 2011 but did not get a response:

Teresa Giudice ‏@Teresa_Giudice
I’m on the TODAY show with Kathy Lee and Hoda tomorrow morning! Should I bring them wine? xx

3 May 11 Cat ‏@yourfriendkitty
@Teresa_Giudice good luck tomorrow. Yes bring wine! Xo

Teresa Giudice ‏@Teresa_Giudice
Just dropped off gils at dance waiting with Audriana..beautiful day here everyone enjoy…Xx

    If the fans found out Teresa was behind this, the fall out would be massive. She may just be feeling sorry for the bashing cat is getting.

      I don’t think Teresa is trying to hide anything… if she was, she would have deleted the tweet. The simple fact that the tweet is still on her timeline speaks volumes. If anything, it proves she has nothing to hide… we will most likely never know what really went down with this Cat chick, but IMO one things for sure, the rest of the cast are jealous of Teresa and will continue to do anything and everything to bring her down.

      Maybe this is going to be a dissenting opinion but I don’t think there was any setup at all. I think each and every one of them was going along with the program and the only set up here was of the viewers of Bravo. There are too many holes in everyones story, too much bad acting to go around on everyone’s part. That scene in the bathroom, what little of it I saw reeks of amateur hour, and I find it hard to believe that any of what we have seen, especially in the latter part of the season isn’t a figment of some puppetmaster’s head.

    I personally don’t think it’s that big of a deal. This tweet is obviously a response to the kitty kat, who knows, it may have been an apology. I would also venture a guess that Teresa has someone tweeting for her.

  4. adioslunatic

    Wow, 4:54 am is pretty early in the morning. Especially after being out late at a Yankee’s game the night before and having to get the kids together for Gabriella’s soccer game this morning. Snapbird says Kat’s tweet was sent on the 19th. Perhaps Teresa was trying to catch up on her twitter and just sent out an automatic “miss you, too” not completely realizing who she was tweeting to( she had to be groggy) and that is why she deleted it.

    • September 22, 2012 at 1:37 PM

      The snapbird timestamp is always off. Go by the other timestamp. I’m going to update the article to note this.

    It certainly feels like the viewers are being played. Big time. Combined with the fact that KimD’s Posche Show is at the Brownstone this year…

    There had better be a darn good explanation for the reason behind the Gorga family not speaking to one another. I don’t need to know – that’s between them. I just hope that it’s much more than a “set up” on “scripted reality” show.

    No matter, whether Teresa is behind the set up or not I think most of us that support Teresa feel like she was forced to make a deal with the Bravo Devil to ensure financial security for her family. Even if she willingly played the part of the “villian” in Seasons 3 & 4, we all know she really had no choice but to play the hand Bravo dealt to her.

    • Peggy C

      I think Teresa has gone along with Bravo on a lot of things. Remember When she was recently on WWHL and she pointedly told Andy “see I’m a GOOD employee.” Several people commented that it was odd.

    • old NJ girl
      September 23, 2012 at 1:15 PM

      I believe that the original sit up was at the salon. All of the housewives were supposed to go the salon before the show. Only Teresa showed up driven by Kim D. The set up was for Lookers. Don’t know who set it up but the had Bravo’s help. Teresa was NOT involved.
      I think that the producer Cat (Lookers rumored lover at the time) flipped the script and the major set up was for Teresa at the show. Lookers, Joey, Jac and Caro, Lauren were in on it. Lookers completely over reacted to the word “DANCER” Lookers then over acts when she calls Joey who just happen to be right next door and already had a mic on. Jac and Lauren were getting text messages right before everything went down and Jac also cautioned a blonde standing next to Angelo. Teresa did not give them the reaction that they wanted so the producer Cat sliced and diced Angelo’s words to have him say that Teresa was in on the whole set up. Sorry, but Teresa is the worse actress. Remember CA? She was fired because she was so bad. Also Lookers and the rest of the cast have spent the last year condemning Teresa for the set up. Doesn’t anyone believe that Teresa would agree to that. It hurts her public image.
      I think the sole reason Teresa tweeted back was just to be nice. She is the only one of the cast that has moved on and in a much better, happy, healthier, richer and more successful place.

        September 23, 2012 at 1:45 PM

        If anyone has last Sunday’s show on Tivo check out what Lauren is saying to Don Caro when the Lookers’ guy walks up to the table. The camera pans to them as MeGo starts to talk to the Lookers’ guy. I swear she is saying, while reading a text to Don Caro, “(unintelligible) is going to throw Teresa off the roof” they were all in on it except Teresa.

      SB-This theory gets my vote. If it were me and a producer was working Overtime to have me relieved of my duties and conspiring w people who were no longer supportive of me, I might get a little kick out of saying “miss you too” veiled way of saying – you thought u were going to get me off the show (miss me) but it looks like ur doing the dirty work cost u ur job (miss you). Can totally see this.

      I watched S1 & S2 again and what a difference! There were so many things said and done that now make sense now. If you’ve got the time to, even just watching the reunions will give u enough a-ha’s.

      • September 22, 2012 at 2:31 PM

        It is still on my timeline. Teresa was still at Yankee game I think. It is between two other tweets. I think it could have been something really simple because maybe of not knowing the extent of what producers were doing to her by portraying her in a bad light. I wonder if she reads any of the blogs? Hopefully Teresa isn’t playing us as fools.

    It may have been a sarcastic reply in response to something – but still doesn’t explain the change in Cat’s twitter photo – Maybe Cat has since apologized for what happened last year and she and Tre mended fences?

    Jacqueline told Melissa BEFORE the show that somebody – and Jac will not identify who – texted her and said “Something’s going down tonight. I don’t know who the target is.” I still think it was Cat. IMO opinion though – I really don’t care what the “truth” and who set up who. Frankly, I think Melissa is sneaky and calculating so whatever or however this all came about – she deserves whatever backlash she gets from this considering the havoc she has caused the last few years. Mind boggling she gets a pass from EVERYONE for going to Danielle – supposedly the SWORN ENEMY of the Manzo/Laurita clan.

    • Jeannie5233
      September 23, 2012 at 7:26 PM

      I’m not saying Melissa is part of this set up – I am saying she is calculating. Case in point – read ON COMMON GROUND around April 2008 where she and her sisters are talking about Teresa while Season 1 was in production and the fact that she has admitted to contacting Danielle knowing full well she was playing with fire. That is calculating.

      • Jeannie5233
        September 24, 2012 at 7:38 AM

        Why would Melissa, who is not on the show at this point, even want to know what was going on between them, if they weren’t on speaking terms? What would Melissa’s motives be to speak with someone she doesn’t know? If I am not speaking to my husband’s sister and I am all about family and wanting my husband to be getting along with his parents and his only sister, the last thing I would do is to interact with someone and feed them “inside information” that I know is going to cause even more problems. Doesn’t add up. I agree to disagree with you – Have a nice day!

    Cat isn’t a random fan to Teresa on twitter, she would have recognized the name. It’s the same argument made against Melissa- how could you not remember someone you worked with/for over a long period of time? So, say an assistant does the tweeting for her then why not dm cat? It’s totally probable that whether or not it’s Teresa or an assistant, that tweet was not meant to be public and someone made a mistake. If there was no harm in it being public, then it wouldn’t be deleted. It’s not stirring up interest, it’s creating angry confusion. If we are looking at whether a producer is so biased that she would spend over a year trying to destroy one woman, Teresa, and as an outcome, her family relationships- then in what universe would said victim still be friendly with said producer? And we are supposed to believe Bravo terminated Cat’s career because she finally crossed one too many lines? Maybe Cat never did anything that extreme and the sources saying she did are lying or misinformed… what if Cat is a scapegoat to draw attention away from something else? It doesn’t seem like she got fired, just shifted around. If she works for Sirens Media now, then she is still around the Wakiles at least:

    I hope I linked that right, Kathy wrote, “Some of our behind the scenes friends” and included @Sirensmedia (photo included).

    I don’t think Cat was “fired” in the sense that I would expect if she did something really awful- like all ties are now severed. Maybe she just received a new title and was quickly filed under something that doesn’t involve Bravo directly even if they contract that company for services.So, it seems like she went poof! but she’s still involved to some extent.

    I’m more confused than ever, but what is clear is that the Gorgas, Wakiles and Manzos deeply dislike Teresa and Kim D- they are promoting the ever loving day out of each others’ endeavors + families pitches on twitter & public appearances (including heavy-handed attention to Posh Boutique versus Kim D’s Posche boutique). Yet, we have Kim D saying her event is being held at the Brownstone… so, Miss “my husband will destroy you” Caroline doesn’t seem to either care or have the power to prevent that, which may mean no one actually blames Kim D for a set-up despite the vicious tweets between Melissa’s sisters and Kim D after that last episode aired. If Caroline doesn’t like you, then you don’t get to participate in her world.

    So, possibly everyone really despises Teresa because she set-up Melissa + Punta Cana lawsuits+ whatever else (in my opinion, realistically, for being the breakout star despite their seeming concerted efforts to bombard her with negative publicity repeatedly) or Teresa literally doesn’t hold grudges against producer Cat who possibly did nothing to her and she actually holds Melissa or someone else (different editor) responsible for whatever has happened between her and the rest of the cast. It could explain why Melissa hasn’t spoken to her in a year- not just because Melissa wouldn’t, but also because Teresa really was the one who was DONE.

    Deleting the tweet on Teresa’s account and Cat changing her profile pic on purpose could be due to legal constraints- Bravo could have told Teresa not to keep that tweet up because people start guessing at what it means and it affects story lines (esp. if they are floating misinformation around) and Cat seeing a lot of negative heat on her but unable to clear it up yet trying to demonstrate there are no real hard feelings between her and Teresa.

    It’s all just a guess, and the truth is probably just as stupid.

    sorry for such a long comment, i love reading all the comments here and then I realize, wow, I need to take a break! thanks for running such a fascinating site.

    I do not believe that the entire cast was in on a “set up” to fool the audience. There has been way tooo much vindictiveness and back and forth for that to be the case.

    This is just a theory – either an assistant misread a tweet and then answered by mistake on Teresa’s behalf or Teresa’s account has been hacked. As far as Cat changing her Twitter pic – maybe she is trying to throw everyone off and put the spotlight back on Teresa with questions by photoshopping the pic. Again, just theories. There could be many different explanations – but as we all know, truth can be stranger than fiction!

    • hoolie
      September 22, 2012 at 5:25 PM

      I’m sure this Cat woman is seeing her name being thrown all over twitter and on blogs, and I can guarantee she changed her profile pic because of an agenda. As far as Teresa responding to the tweet- it’s been talked about on this site and others about how Cat WAS NOT tweeting her, but was tweeting everyone else…. so that may explain why she or an assistant was going through her queue quickly and just replied and didn’t think anything.
      OR- maybe everyone is wrong, and Cat had nothing to do with the bad editing…. who knows.
      All I know is I can still see the tweet, when go to Teresa’s page, I specifically click to see ALL tweets as it comes up automatically with tweets only WITH REPLIES…. it’s still there.

    Maybe is nothing but that’s a low blow to Teresa, and about Cat R changing is twitter photo, for me speaks more about trying to persuade us that she is friends with Teresa too… which is very weird, being that, I guess for what I read before she twitted all of them bur Her, I find it very suspicious and also it tells me that Teresa is the one going down tomorrow on the finale and the reunion, trying to make the viewers think that they where right about Teresa all along … If that happens I’ll stop watching the RHW franchise, because I don’t think she got anything to do with it, she’s not a good actress. Oh well, I guess I’ll have to wait… And the thing is, I don’t know Melisa, but she reminds me so much of my husband sister in law, she is always nice to you in person, but since she got married to my husband brother, they stop talking, and she does nasty things to his family that you don’t detect until later, even my mother in law who is a very good and kind person is no longer felling welcome in their house, I mean she is nice to you, but you don’t feel comfortable in their home, very two face situation, they are very isolated from all off us, but her family is always there, just like Melisa’s family, they have a little more money that the rest of the family, especially my in laws, so their always acting as if people is going to ask them for something, which is not the case, my mother in law would never ask for any help, and even if she did it, I don’t think that would be a big deal, in my mind, if you have money or ways to help your parents, even more so if their where the best, the right thing to do is give them what you can, they won’t be here forever, you need to show them love and respect, I don’t think is a coincidence that Teresa has a better relationship with her parents than her brother, older people are more difficult to fool… lol I kind of vented my frustration here, sorry about that, what I am trying to explain is that it can happen, people would do bad stuff to another human being, no matter who it is, to accomplished something for their own gain, more so if there’s money involve, my respect is for Teresa in all this situation, she’s the one working and being a good mother, without having to talk bad or trying to bring people down, I don’t care what other people think, shes the one doing the most for her family in the honest way… just my opinion !!

    I admit and have publicly acknowledged my concerns regarding this show. I have questioned the authenticity of it. My first thought was how do people act this way? I’m 52 yrs old and have never in my life seen adults conduct themselves with such drama. I’ve thought that perhaps all are in on this. Then I think about how many people are involved and wonder, is it possible? We have a large cast of characters here. There’s twitter, blogs, tv appearances etc. I then think, how can they pull this off? I’ll tell what! My head is spinning. I’ve devoted 10 months to this and am more confused now than ever. there are certain scenes that I’m certain are edited. The whole phone call situation was questionable. However, Teresa stated in her blog that she tried to stop that from airing. If it’s manufactured, why are you begging Bravo not to air it?? I watched S3 E1 and nothing about that Christening seemed fake. I’m truly confused but am a huge Teresa fan nonetheless. I also admit that the take down of one Melissa Gorga makes me very happy. That makes me sick and confused. Lol
    Keep up the incredible work fame! When I found your site several months ago, I knew
    I stumbled upon a true gem!!

      Dubba, your 10 month run is about where I am. I rarely comment, and for a while, I only read the Bravo site. One day I came across someone mentioning this site, and ever since then, I’ve been hooked. I never really watched any housewives shows. Then one time I was a JetBlue flight from JFK to San Diego and I somehow got sucked into a NJ marathon on Bravo. The first episode I saw was the christening, which I just rewatched this past Sunday. Without the first two seasons to form an opinion, my perceptions of the cast were formed from this one show and on. I instantly admired Teresa for running around the house getting all the girls ready while Joe was having “stomach problems.” Meanwhile we see Melissa and her sisters all catty, oh is Teresa gonna be there? We pay our bills! My parties are more fabulous than Teresa’s, hee heee heee! Imitating Teresa’s voice, and on and on until the whole garbage comment and table banging and I remember seeing Melissa kicking people during the brawling and thinking, that ain’t her first fight! lol From that episode I liked Teresa, Jax and Caroline, wasn’t sure what to make of Kathy, and thought Melissa, Joe and her sisters and their husbands were sh1^ stirrers and somewhat trashy.

      I grew up in Jersey and lived there until 29 years of age. I even went to college there, all in the same counties and areas as the show. I liked it at first even with some of the dark drama because it reminded of home and was fun. Season 4? It makes me sick to my stomach, and I’m not even sure I can watch tomorrow. We can all sit here and speculate and wish for how this will all pan out after the reunion and then for Season 5, but the bottom line is Bravo really ruined it for me and apparently a lot of other folks. I really don’t feel like contributing to higher ratings because I feel they’ve hit rock bottom with what they are will to do for rating and money. So I will just come to the blogs on Sunday night or Monday AM and see how it went down.

      A few points, bear with me this is my first post and I want to get it all out!
      – Teresa is not an angel, and she is a bit superficial, but when I look at her I see a great mom, a loyal family oriented person, and truly a loyal friend, whatever Jax or whoever may say.
      – Jax is unstable. Her daughter is unstable. Her mother is unstable. Hard to break that cycle I suppose.
      – Caroline has her own set of issues. While I admired her at first for her loyalty, I think she does a lot for show now. This is especially apparent if you go back and watch the earlier seasons now. At the PFS in S3, she said in the talking head, Teresa’s my friend. I don’t know Kathy. I need more info. So for her to be SO brutal and bullying and claim they were never friends is baffling. I think her life was defined as a mom, period. Because Albert was always working (went to a few weddings at the Brownstone btw, it’s not a bad place, but not in the greatest neighborhood!) and her not having a career, this was probably even more so. Now she’s going through menopause and the kids are (sort of) leaving. She’s a mess.
      – Kathy is SOOOO incredibly passive aggressive! If you watch the S3 PFS, she HAD to go talk to Teresa about the christening, just like she HAD to discuss her issues with Caroline when she was three feet away in Napa…I’m sure she knows exactly how to push her buttons and so passively did this. They all say Teresa throws rocks and hides her hands but I think Kathy is the master of this.
      – And then there’s Melissa. OY! I think the girl absolutely has an identify crisis and just wants attention. She really does copy Teresa, I’m sorry, but it’s true. But she also clearly thinks she is the next JLo. And who knows what else, but meh, I went to school with girls like her. They are loud for attention, dress provocatively for attention, get silly and goofy for attention, sleep around for attention. I think her father gave her a ton of attention and now he’s not around anymore and she’s desperately trying to replace that.

      Joe Guidice is not a bad guy. Again, went to school and even dated a guy like that. I really believe that phone call was edited. I think lots of things on that show are. Joe Gu is another one of those loyal to the core family guys. I think he’s done a lot of crazy crap but at the end of the day he loves his family. As far as Joe Gorga goes, he disgusts me too. Everywhere he goes he looks for attention just like his wife. He’s always shaking his butt, exposing himself and making inappropriate remarks, Richie too.

      Bottom line is I can only watch the sorting through the train wreckage so long, and my time expired after last episode. Teresa was set up, plane and simple and I think most if not all of the cast was in on it. It is so sad to watch family go at it. Confession? I will TOTALLY watch season 5 if they change the story line and put Melissa in her place.

      Sorry, so long, but I just want to end with, if you know what you know now, and go back and watch the first few episodes of S3, there are some very enlightening and enraging moments. I still have not seen one episode from S1 but I don’t want to purchase anything that will give Bravo money, web hits or ratings. So I’m trying to figure that one out if anyone has any suggestions!

        @Shell6 All of the episodes from Season 1 to last week’s can be found on YouTube, free of charge, in one form or another. They’re not hard to find.

        • September 22, 2012 at 9:57 PM

          They are easier to find if you use the episode name, which you can find on Bravo. For season 1, the episode names are here:


          For example, your youtube search for season 1, episode 1 would be:

          “Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 1 Thicker Than Water”

            Thanks! Great site, Fame, in putting out the facts. I wish others would understand there is more to the show than just what they see. I confess the first I time I saw fame whorga on the Bravo site, I googled it, and got here, I stayed up past midnight reading through everything!!!

        Shell6 – ITA with your assessment of each character. Good job in summing them all up!

        And like you, I haven’t wanted to watch much of this season or the reunion, but I want to see and hear it for myself. I have hope for a new season after hearing that Bravo is casting for a friend or friends to film with Teresa. It may not be true, but I am waiting to see who is cast for next season before I completely stop watching.

        September 23, 2012 at 10:49 AM

        Shell, when you have a chance to go back and watch S1 & 2 you’ll see a completely different show. I also started late in the game. My first episode was S2 reunion. Prior to that I’d only seen stories in magazines. (I thought Teresa was a whackadoodle. Lol.) once I started, I was hooked. I found Teresa to be so endearing. The show was about family, Teresa being the silly side kick. You’ll see over the years that Teresa was always protective of her family and I thought, very careful in what she revealed. Everything about melissa’s debut performance to the present day has changed the dynamic of the show. throw in a little Kathy and her BS, Jac’s craziness, Caroline’s hatefulness and here we have today’s version of NJ housewives. Teresa though is still the same!!
        One thing that always stays with me is Teresa on CA. She was the only one who thanked people during the tasks ( workers, etc.) it said a lot about who I think she is as a person.
        My latest theory is..the ladies at some point were given a script or concept to follow. They’re still following it however, the show played out differently than expected. That’s why the anger and hatefulness doesn’t match the crime!! That’s why it’s not making sense. We were supposed to hate Teresa by now, after all we’ve read between the lines. Somewhere along the line, the season went amok and the players forget to switch gears.

          September 24, 2012 at 12:21 AM

          Well I just watched the S1 E1 on youtube as told, it was right there, no commercials…brilliant! And yes, you are so right, it was a completely different show. One of Caroline’s first lines is, Teresa is so funny, I don’t even think she knows how funny she is. There is obvious friendship there. So what is so horrid that this all went so wrong? I agree, the hatred does not fit the crime! So sad, Jax was so lovable then. PS: Danielle from the word go is a freak!

        October 4, 2012 at 3:18 PM

        You are biased and not being a fair critic. Joe is not a bad guy? Teresa is a loyal and family oriented person? NOT!!! Teresa does not like her family and is why she did not want any family on the show. Because it would expose their dysfunction and ruin the family oriented image she was trying to create. And you and many fans bought it. But Teresa couldn’t say that because it would reveal her true self so she throws out talking points for you, and her other die hard fans, one of them is that her family came on the show to take her down. Go back to the reunion when she blew up at Danielle, only because Danielle asked if she went to see her nephew at the hospital. Teresa said at the last reunion that her mother told her that Richie and Kathy almost divorced. That tells me that Teresa and her mother gossip about the family. So no, Teresa is not family oriented. She just want you to believe that she is. Sadly, you do.

    In all fairness to Teresa….I think Teresa does was she has too. I think Andy Cohen clearly shows favorites on his show. I think the producers and Andy have set out to make Teresa the villian and have us believe that she is this mean nasty person who has it out for her sister in law. When it is obvious the reverse. When I say she does what she has to…Remember Teresa was in a bad financial situation a few years ago. She clearly needed to stay on the show. I think she has to take the hits that the producers and Andy serve up. She refers to Andy as her “boss”. Which makes me wonder why she feels the need to say that. It irratates me. She does what they want her to do and has had to deal with that piece of crap sister in law coming on the show. I think Andy is totally bias with his line of questioning on wwhl and the reunion shows. I can barely watch this show anymore because it is just so ugly. I wish Teresa could be done with it…but then again she has to pay her bills. I dont see the big deal of her texting this Cat woman back perhaps its another set up to get us all to back off of the idea that they actaully set up Teresa to take the fall yet again. Who knows? The brains behind rhonj are cold pieces of work to destroy this family for ratings….this show has clearly taken it to a new level. A little on the darkside for me. I belive it was just a response .Cat reaches out to Teresa and she responded. Everybody seems to be tweeting her (Cat) and friendly with her. Perhaps Cat is trying to stay relivant in these peoples lives for some reason since she is not producing the show anymore. Or maybe Teresa does fell sorry for her and the backlash she is getting. I just hope Teresa is smart enough
    to fall for any of it and realizes nobody can be trusted on this show or behind the scenes. I’m just glad Melissa’s truth is out…just goes to show she is fake fake fake. “Thank you Jesus”. I dont care what she did in her past. But when you come on a show claiming how better you are than others and purposly set out to destroy another family member well then you deserve the backlash that comes with it. There’s no way I can watch the gorga’s for another season. Guess ill miss my fav Teresa :

    • September 22, 2012 at 8:27 PM

      You have to select ALL tweets to make sure her replies to others will show up. If you don’t, you can only see what she tweets or retweets. Due to size of her account the are categorized.

  20. September 22, 2012 at 8:17 PM

    I don’t think Teresa deleted the tweet because I can still see it.
    Maybe Cat didn’t have as much to do with the setup as originally though, or maybe Teresa is completely unaware?

    It’s definitely strange that she appears friendly with Cat, but she didn’t delete the tweet…so I don’t think she’s trying to hide anything.

  21. September 22, 2012 at 8:32 PM

    Also…I just watched the previews for tomorrow’s episode. It looks like Teresa is the one that brings up the Lookers situation to Melissa, which is kind of disappointing.

    Knowing that Melissa heard of the setup before hand, she was clearly smart enough to let T make the first move (she knows how to play the victim). I wish T just kept her mouth shut and let it play out on its own, that way it wouldn’t be as easy to point the finger at her..

    What a mess.

    I don’t think Teresa was behind the setup though. She looked way too genuinely confused and uncomfortable last episode. If I had to guess, I would say Kim D and Bravo were the ones that set up both Melissa and Teresa. Then Melissa saw it as an opportunity to turn more viewers against T. Unless Melissa really thinks Teresa was behind it….I doubt it though.

    Is it possible Kim D (or a mutual friend of Kim D & Jac) was the one texting Jacqueline? That wouldn’t surprise me.

      September 22, 2012 at 11:04 PM

      Yes, me too! T can’t admit that she knows though because then Andy would know she’s been reading blogs that cast bad light on the show, while not saying positive things about(defending) bravo. On WWHL one time he told her ‘people think I’m not on your side…I told you to get on Apprentice’ he was mad that she wasn’t defending him. She has to keep her hands clean and play dumb for anouther contract-which is what she is after-the money will probably greatly increase and she can pay off Joe’s debt(sigh) …She’s at the top of her game and she knows it. She has many offers for other shows on other networks and wants them to compete for her. Good girl!
      No one has admitted to anything, so she can’t pretend to know. I also don’t think she is sure of just how many of them are in on it. She can’t just walk away from the show and repair her family, becasue Cat would still be in her life.
      We’ll never hear the truth from bravo. Maybe one day Jac will have another breakdown and tell-all. that’s what I see happening.

  23. September 22, 2012 at 10:35 PM

    They were caught with their pants down and they are going to try to do the same with Teresa. We know who was caught with their pants down LOL. I am team Teresa. BRAVO and Andy needs to learn something in all this BS..

    I believe the person texting Jac during PFS = Kim G. She knows who Angelo is, knew what KimD would be up to. and has the ability to play Jac–not to mention the motivation to get even with Teresa.

    Kim G for the win.

      September 23, 2012 at 1:24 AM

      My money is all on Kim D. While I watch because its addicting I’m not really partial to any one character but it made me sick just to watch Kim D.’s fake “Oops” and “I’m sorry Teresa, I just had to know” crap. She’s not a good friend to Teresa as much as she claims. And for her to say, “No problems tonight ladies,” WHATEVER!! She knew who was at the fashion show! She knew what Angelo had told her and she knew there was a chance Angelo would confront Melissa so she’s asking for the negative attention….begging for it!

    • Shell6
      September 23, 2012 at 1:56 AM

    I feel that considering how we know the Reunion turned out I wouldn’t read too much into this tweet. For all we know this may be another example of what Teresa did with Danielle after Danielle tweeted WWHL to let Teresa know what Melissa had done. After all, if this Kat lady was fired from Bravo for overstepping her boundaries as a Bravo employee she may be disgruntled and fed Teresa some info. Who knows. Either way there is no love lost between any of these cast members. And, I would bet all the money in Vegas that if Melissa and Kathy were asked if they would join this cast again knowing what they know now they’d say YES! They both have no shame and no family principles.

      If nothing else I cann`t help but think the little guy came out the winner because of the neg blogs about Melissa.Imo Mel and Joe have sold out the ones that need them the most,their kids and Joe`s mom and dad.If Mel wants to copy anything from Tre I wish it would be the way tre is about her daughters.I always get a kick out of Tre`s girls.My own kids and grand kids were raised in a family were we all spoke our minds and the kids do too.Yes you can take statements and edit film to make the girls look like brats and it breaks my heart that Bravo does that.I have a grand daughter that has always made me hold my breath when she opens her mouth because you just do not know what she will say.I would not change her for all the world even though there are times all you can do is stand there and look dumbfounded.Give me a house full of kids with their own personalities any day!

      No, but thanks for the heads up. I just checked, and they threw him a party on the 22nd, yesterday. His birthday was 10 days earlier, on the 12th.

      Here is my article about them not throwing parties for their kids, which I updated on September 18, 2012, with a picture tweeted by Lysa Simpson, Melissa’s sister, showing that Gino was with her on his birthday (I just updated it today with the newest photos from Gino’s party):

      No Birthday Parties for the Gorga Children; The Cock-and-Bull Story That Teresa Guidice is a Bad Aunt

      Melissa and Joe were at Six Flags on September 14, 2012, but didn’t bring their kids (they must have been on the road on the 12th and Lysa must have had their kids with her). Melissa tweeted on August 8, 2012, Antonia’s birthday, that Antonia ‘chose’ not to have a party this year, and wanted to go to Six Flags instead; however, they never took her there… they planned to piggyback their kids’ birthday celebrations onto their previously scheduled trip to Six Flags for Melissa’s performance at ‘Gay Night Out’ on September 14th, but instead left their kids with the aunt.

      Joe and Melissa were called out by Fame-Whorgas (my article was originally published on May 6, 2012, and then updated and republished on August 13) and Reality Tea (in August) for not throwing parties for their children. Hopefully, it isn’t negative attention from bloggers that motivates them to throw parties for their children. Joe and Melissa should focus their attention more on their children and less on themselves.

    It could be possible that Teresa hasn’t figured out that Cat was behind the set-up? I don’t know what to make of this. Maybe someone should twitter Teresa the story of Cat being behind the set-up. I would do it but I don’t twitter.

    I will say this. If Cat was friends with the other cast members, and was involved with the editing, than I would think Cat was not really friends with the other ladies. Think about it. We see what was edited, and most viewers do not like kathy, Melissa, Caroline and Jaqueline. We Love Teresa. This entire show for the last two seasons have not shown any of the ladies in a good light at all. We see only what was edited and who do we dislike, who do we like?
    Maybe Bravo fired Cat because she showed Teresa getting bullied? Maybe Bravo wanted to get rid of Teresa and Cat screwed that all up when she portrayed Teresa a victim? Which, in my opinion, Teresa was. Bravo is stuck with Teresa now that viewers are backing her up.

    We feel for Teresa and it was edited that way. It’s all in the editing and it’s not Teresa we dislike.
    If anyone has an opinion on my theory, please let me know what you think.

      Maybe Cat was fired for editing the truth? Caroline’s true colours have been revealed, same as Jacqueline. Kathy was seen as a backstabbing instigator. Melissa is viewed as manipulative, sneaky, mean and a whore.

      IGNORE THE ENTIRE COMMENT! I am so wrong, so far off, WTF was I thinking when I wrote this?

      Teresa wrote, Miss You Too as a way of saying, “Cat, I’m still here. My Fans Love Me. They know what you did and guess what? You Have No Job! Miss You RatCat!”

      That’s what I should have written!

  33. September 23, 2012 at 4:36 AM

    I hope you read this, but did you listen to the interview Melissa did on Queens of Media? I just did and she lies on it! She states that she has thousands of videos of her singing (where are they all), was in all the schools plays singing, knew this Noir guy that sings with her for years, family friend,and states that she has sung around people all the time, except Teresa said that she has never heard her sing! Plus didn’t she refuse to sing on the reunion? Melissa sure doesn’t know how to tell the truth! You can hear this on ITunes, go to Melissa Gorga, down at bottom of page!

    • September 23, 2012 at 12:43 PM

      Melissa is a pathological liar. Her lies about herself are one thing, but when she lies to hurt others, she sinks to an even lower level. In Us Weekly, she accused Teresa of man-handling her at Gia’s and Milania’s birthday in January 2012 (I haven’t read the article, but someone here commented about it). She made only a brief appearance at the party just so she could plant a nasty story at RT (going by ‘secret source’ of course) about Teresa and Gia. She is beyond disgusting.

      Joe Gorga Attended DWTS Maksim’s Birthday Party But Not Gia and Milania’s Joint Party

        September 23, 2012 at 5:23 PM

        I have a subscription to US Weekly which I used to enjoy up until recently. It has become such a piece of yellow journalism with the biased reporting of LeAnn Rimes, Kristen Stewart, even Kate Middleton, and the absolutely blantant kissing ass of the Manzos and Lauritas. I am in the process of canceling it. Anyway, here is part of the article regarding Melissa’s claim Teresa manhandled her:

        “Milania’s and Gia’s joint birthday party was in January, and I went with a smile on my face. I didn’t have any intention of making up, but I went for my kids”. (P.S. Joe Gorga went to Maks’ birthday party that night along with Jacqueline.) “At the end of the night, I had my son Joey in my arms and Teresa grabbed my arm and twisted it as hard as she could and said, “you’re so fake.” US Weekly asks – “How did you react?” Melissa: “I said, “Get your hands off me! There are kids everywhere!” I grabbed my kids and I said “Come on guys. Let’s go.” If Teresa could have ripped my face off, she probably would have. She was so pissed I even came: She wasn’t able to go to the press and say “Look at my sister-in-law. She’s not even coming to the kids’ birthday parties.” Melissa then goes on further accusing Teresa of trying to hurt her and Joe financially by calling a club owner and telling him “Don’t give her another appearance. Don’t pay her!” Supposedly, the owner then called Melissa up and told her that Teresa was litterally screaming at him.

        My feeling on this – I wish Teresa had ripped off her face – and Teresa didn’t have to go the press about her sister-in-law who is really insignificant in her life. The only reason Melissa showed up to that party is for that very reason – she wanted to look good. Uncle Joe Gorga (“I would die for that kid”} was all over the place having his pics taken at Maks'(from DWTS) party that night proving how much she REALLY means to him.

        When oh when are these people going to get exposed?????

    September 23, 2012 at 4:54 AM

    Who knows. All I can say is that for the past 2 seasons we have all been a witness to hypocrisy at its best. Personally I don’t see what Teresa would have to gain by outing Melissa. Everyone has a past in some way, shape or form that they’d like a do-over on some parts. It’s what shapes you and helps you to grow. But being a stripper is not enough to go through all this trouble that she has been accused of. A murderer/kidnapper maybe, a stripper… petty.

    One thing that Teresa has been consistent with since the RHONJ started is her passion for her family. Jacqueline even stated in her first blog from S3 that she had seen Kathy, Melissa & Joey at all of Teresa’s family events and had never heard Teresa speak of any issues with them (though now, conveniently, she has changed her tune). Maybe Teresa was only supposed to be the silly friend who Bravo had not banked on as being on the show very long but surprised them with the table flip and how popular she got after that and had to find a way to get her off to not piss off fans. All I know is that she is a very strong woman who loves her family with such a passion. I even feel that to this day if Joey were to talk to her again and say sorry she would forgive all the nasty things he has done to her directly. I hate that she is being portrayed as this village idiot in every aspect but yet on the other side of their mouths they believe she is this manipulative mastermind who set all this up without anyone’s knowledge. I don’t think she is ignorant… just very gullible and too trusting.

    Someone else mentioned above about Teresa acknowledging Andy as “her boss”. I have always wondered why she has said more than once that she is a “good employee”. I wonder what she means by that? I tell you what though I have been waiting and trying to read between these supposed lines that we’ve been told to do by Colonel Caroline and her soldiers (lol) and all I have seen is women vilifying another woman for the exact same things they themselves do. I think when all this dust and smoke settles and at the end of the day Teresa can hold her head high knowing that she didn’t join a show to take a relative down, she didn’t speak of her parents personal finances on National Television to boost her ego, she didn’t belittle anyone else’s “minor” children, She didn’t bring up anyone else’s personal financial status on air (Jacqueline’s bankruptcy), she didn’t out a cast member for lying to hold a public seat then fired from it once he was caught, she didn’t instigate talking about anyone’s marriage until a personal conversation she had while NOT being filmed was brought up on camera to garner sympathy from that person. I could go on and on but what I admire about Teresa is that she has not cowared to all of these characters assassinations about her. I love that she portrays a strong woman instead of always playing the victim (unlike Melissa). Of all the things Melissa copies from Teresa this is the trait she should be esteeming to. Since Melissa & Kathy and their tow have joined this show I feel like I am watching an episode of Jerry Springer.

      “Someone else mentioned above about Teresa acknowledging Andy as “her boss”. I have always wondered why she has said more than once that she is a “good employee”. I wonder what she means by that?”

      Teresa attends every producer-driven event unlike Caroline and Jacqueline, who skipped out on Kathy’s pool party and Beatstock in season 4. Caroline hadn’t attended any previous season’s Posche fashions shows (how very convenient that she was there for the season 4 setup!). They all bailed on getting their hair and makeup done at La Chateau Allure except for Teresa … that was producer-driven, and maybe Cat told the others not to go so that Teresa could be setup to take the fall. Jacqueline was a no-show at the season 3 reunion, and Teresa sat there while her former friend and family members berated her. And from reports leaked about reunion 4, Bravo brought in the husbands, children and siblings of her castmates to join in the public lynching of Teresa.

      Yeah, Teresa is a good employee because she goes where Bravo tells her to go and she puts on a happy face and tries to make the best of it.

    Just speculating, but it is quite possible that Cat changed her profile pic and purposely messaged Teresa in a non-DM tweet so that Teresa would reply and viewers would see Cat’s new profile pic. She/Bravo would assume people would question her role in the setup if they thought Cat was friendly with Teresa and vice versa and would perhaps continue to assume all the drama was within the filmed cast instead of the obvious production fueled drama that we have all discovered.

    Also speculating, Melissa is capable of some pretty nasty back-handed and deceitful attacks. Cat may have been used, abused, rode hard and put away wet? Melissa has no loyalty to her own family, so why would anyone believe she would be loyal to them. I can imagine Cat having a huge target on her back, especially if she broke the rules and favored Melissa (in an unprofessional way). It’s possible that Teresa and Cat having more in common now, neither has benefited from associating with Mego!

    Just added this to the article:

    “In relation to Cat Rodriguez sending a tweet to Teresa: “She would of been asked to make it public by the producers. They are aware of the what is being said on Twitter and blogs. Cat hates Teresa and Teresa knows it. I don’t know for a fact, but I can bet Cat was told to appear mutual to squash the rumors and Teresa would of had to go along with it.” – Anonymous Source, September 23, 2012, Fame-Whorgas

    I don’t take ANYTHING Jacqueline states as truth. She is just as devious as Melissa. Another person who used her “family” to make herself relevant on this show (Ashlee/Nich). She is a sad excuse for a mother. You would think that with her son’s diagnosis she’d have an attitude much like Teresa’s outlook after Celebrity Apprentice and focus on her son. She’ll be back for another season if asked. With Autism you have to have structure and routine, it is very important to have that, not just diet alone. My son was tested and considered borderline (long story). She could care less about the cameras in his face and their home and how it will effect him long term.

    I don’t have a twitter acct so I was able to read what you can see without an acct. She is stating Kim D also… yet isn’t Caroline allowing another PFS at the Brownstone? Then states she wasn’t (really) friends with Teresa again because she heard comments Teresa said during the California trip (assuming negative). She then has the gall to say she hopes Teresa gets the help she needs! WTH…. Jacqueline is wackodoodle!

    She’s stating Teresa wasn’t really her friend. Didn’t we see Jacqueline mocking Teresa during phone convo on the deck and setting the phone down while she did other things around the house leaving Teresa talking? Didn’t we hear Jacqueline gossiping about Teresa with the other ladies? Did we see/hear Jacqueline coming to Teresa’s defense when Kathy & Melissa were trash talking her? Did we see Jacqueline believe her longtime friend when Teresa told her that she didn’t get the text from her Brother but yet she believed Melissa when she said he sent it right away(lie)? NO NO NO… She has always believed Melissa’s version over Teresa which given the sleazy lengths Melissa and Co. took to get on this show it speaks volumes of the type of character they have so for Jacqueline to believe an ounce of what comes out of their pipehole over a long time friend who she had never had issues with before is not a friend worth having.

    … I tried this just to confirm a truth and I was successful: When people talk about set ups, what they don’t understand is that this: Real Housewives of New Jersey and all of the house wives show is “scripted reality”. Every thing on the show is a set up by the producers. There is a reason why the ladies are on their cell phones all the time. The producers tell them how to act, when to act, what to say, and also “set up” scenarios for all of the ladies (play dates, lunch dates, trips, encounters, plot lines, etc). Sometimes they are left to their own “reality”, but 99% of the time, the producers do “set up” everything. You have witnessed these ladies “intellect” (or complete lack thereof). There is a reason to keep the “reality” going. It is big business. It did not start out being this way, but since reality tv and especially the housewives show is profitable, it is what the industry knows as SCRIPTED REALITY and more and more, the reality goes out the window and the scenarios and characters are shaped as the production deems profitable. These are characters, playing a part! That’s all…(Oh and they know that they are characters, that is why they are getting the bigger salaries), so please please please, educate America. I confirmed this to be true via two means: 1-I have a close friend who works on the show; 2-I entered the same comment as above in every one of the housewives blogs 10 days in a row using a different name and email address. None of the comments were “approved” and ever appeared on the blog. Sorry to reveal the truth, but there it is. I can’t stand the stupidity. I hope to feel better soon, so I never have to watch television again! Wow, so this is what I was missing all of these years. Read a book America!

    Linda… I sense your frustration at our comments and the comments you probably read on the Bravo blogs. We are aware that a major part of this show is scripted. What we can’t get over is how & why family & friends would do what they do to one and other just for monetary gain. There has a be a compassionate part to the person (cast) to where enough is enough. Teresa has held her own and refrained from character assassination OFF camera. What I can’t understand is the venom spewed at Teresa from the other cast/family members/friends OFF camera if this is only scripted. How they carry themselves OFF camera is not scripted to them by producers… that’s on them. From your statement it sounds like you’re saying they are OK with what they are doing because they are getting paid. I hope that is not the case. If you have a close friend that works on this show and feels it’s OK with what is going on then I’d keep them at arms length.

      its a scripted show: IT IS FAKE. example: cinderella is a story; some one wrote this story, the characters are not real!!! (the people are real, not the characters they play)! In scripted reality, the characters are written, they play a part, and profit from it! Think of the Kardashians…..same concept. The more drama, the more story line, the more product endorsements, the more money, the more buzz, etc………Its called the publicity machine, that keeps people interested, that keeps the money coming in, that keeps the commercial space being bought, etc. etc……this is not hard to understand is it? The characters profit, the corporation profits………and YOU keep watching….like a soap opera that goes on for 25 years……same concept, except in scripted reality, you think the people are doing whatever it is that they are doing on their own accord…….It isn’t enough yet, because YOU buy into it. It will stop being enough, the minute that ratings go down. That’s it. What happens to reality stars once the camera stops rolling??? Really! ….and nobody is “broken”, they are characters playing a part……..but then again, some people DO believe in the Cinderella story…….

        Linda – It would be nice to believe that this is all scripted – however, it is not. I was witness to filming the RHOOC in Newport Beach. The cast really is “do their own thing”. However, and this is a BIG however, the staff – producers, etc. do “guide” the cast into asking certain questions and then wait for the reaction – and usually, it is “gold”. Scenarios are set up as well but the cast is left to their own devices. Also, I highly doubt all of the animosity and hate being directed towards Teresa Giudice which continues to this day is “scripted”. We are talking about approximately 25-30 people who keep tweeting and posting awful, horrible things on Facebook against Teresa and her children I might add (poor Milania – that was a disgrace!). Nobody “broken”? Unfortunately, yes.

  44. September 23, 2012 at 5:07 PM

    I do not believe that to the extent you are saying. Maybe there is some staged segments but alot of them are not. The show may have a goal they are going for ,and they may tell different castmates their plan but as far as most of them scripted……no. I sure hope BRAVO plans were not to break up a family along with other things. That outcome was not a scripted I hope…..
